Instructions - Auto Redirect Widget
When placed on a page in your Muse website, the MuseThemes Auto Redirect widget will automatically forward users to a different page on the site (or an external webpage). You can control the timing of the redirect, so users can be instantly forwarded or delayed a set number of seconds.
What can I do with this widget?
This widget can be really helpful when creating unique "structured" links on your website. For example, pretend that you want to send someone a short / concise link that looks like this:
In order for this link to work, you would need a website that contains a subfolder called "join", along with an index.html file within that folder. But what happens if your "join" page already exists in a longer location, such as:
You can use our widget on a blank page that exists in the correct location, and simply redirect visitors to the longer link automatically. If the delay is set to 0 seconds, users won't even notice they were forwarded.
Instructions for Use
STEP 1 - Drag the widget out onto the page you wish to place the redirect
STEP 2 - Click the widget flyout option (blue arrow). Set the URL you would like visitors redirected to, along with the time delay. Suggestion - try redirecting to www.google.com for testing purposes.
STEP 3 - Preview the page in your browser.
